How does Russell show the difference between the two mothers in the play, to affect the audience's response? At the beginning of the play Russell introduces us to the characters of Mrs Jhonstone and Mrs Lyons. Mrs Jhonstone has got a job, but Mrs Lyons has a very well paid husband who works away. Mrs Jhonstone has got 7 children and another 2 on the way. Mrs Lyons can't have children so Mrs Jhonstone sells one of her babies she is having so that both mother can be happy, because Mrs Jhonstone is all ready getting threaded with the welther officer. A quite from the play "I could manage with one more but not two."

When Mrs lyons moves away with Edward Mrs Jhonstone is thinking she will never get to see her son again, but one day she gets a letter from the council saying that she is getting re housed in the county everyone on her street is so happy that they are moving and Mrs Jhonstone is so happy that her life is getting back on track. ...read more.
